What is a medicines list?

The more medicines you take, the more difficult it can be to remember important information about them. A medicines list can be a useful way to keep all the information about your medicines together.

Keeping an up-to-date medicines list will help you to get to know your medicines, get better results from the medicines you use and enjoy better health.

You can use a medicines list to record:

  • all the medicines you currently use including prescription, non-prescription, over-the-counter, minerals, herbal and natural medicines
  • what each medicine is for
  • how much of each medicine to use
  • when and how to use each medicine.
